The 101 # 1 Song of the Day is credited as resurrecting the career of a band that had been written off by the rock press as “lumbering dinosaurs.”
It was the late 70s and disco era was beginning to emerge. That combined with the many distractions such as solo projects, drug problems and divorce had taken its toll on a band that had topped the charts 7 previous times. But it was 5 years since these guys had reached the top and in that time, their singles weren’t cracking the top ten so many were beginning to write them off. But on August 8, 1978 they were back on top and proving once again they still had a whole lot of rock and roll left in them. And they are still doing it today. It’s the Rolling Stones with “Miss You.”
